The main picture is for color purposes only and the secondary picture is the actual yarn shown in Cornflower Creek.

We try and describe the colors as best as we can along with the picture, but since monitors can vary you might consider purchasing a color card if you would like to see the colors in person. It is well worth it.

A non-Vegan* color

Long Staple Fine Organic Pima Cotton (Fair Trade)

Wild Crafted Botanicals: Molle, Huito & Cochineal*.

Metal Salt Mordant: Alum

Made in Peru

Each hank is 50g. & 73 yds.

The average needle used is #8 - #10 (4.5 - 3.5 sts) = 1").

This yarn knits up slightly chunky on a #10, BUT #8- 9 is a more normal worsted gauge. The yarn is made up of 2 roving strands twisted together to form a thick and thin alternating texture. Organic Cotton yarn can sometimes shrink between 10-15% in length. If you are unsure, I would launder a sample first when doing a project. The shrinkage only occurs when you machine dry it. If you want the color to stay basically the same, with no shrinkage, either machine wash or hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.

This is a beautiful, soft, thick & thin flamme rovings twisted together. This yarn like most organic cotton does not have a chemical finishing like conventional cotton so it not smooth and polished, but natural and rustic.
